Beethoven - Septet, Op.20 (Electric Rock Arrangement)




Septet in Eb, Op.20 (1799)
- 1. Adagio, Allegro Con Brio

- 4. Tema. Andante con Variazioni
- 5. Scherzo. Allegro molto e vivace,

Adapted from Ludwig van Beethoven's Septet in Eb, Op.20 (1799).
This "rock" arrangement (guitars, keys, bass, drums) of Beethoven's original composition for winds was created by Ed Chang. This newly-rendered adaptation is a manipulated "SynthFont" derivation from a conventional “classical” transcription (in MIDI) by Warren Pepperdine.

A project of The Daily Beethoven:

===================

Boilerplate: These tracks were created for my own use to better understand Beethoven's classical works. As an electric guitarist, I "hear" guitar and drums better than violin, so these helped me to follow the different melodic and harmonic turns that Beethoven used in his frankly still-revolutionary compositions. Weird syncopations and awkward double-stops and trills on violin sound even more exciting in today's musical vernacular IMHO, and when you add drums doubling the bass melodies it gets pretty close to fusion/technical metal - tho the most complex metal you'll ever hear. Of course these are generated from "MIDI" sequences and triggered soundfonts (samples) so there's a little bit of an auditory leap of faith necessary. Have some fun and don't expect to find Furtwangler or Barenboim here....more like Zappa or King Crimson...maybe some Doors? Merzbow?
